iOS 14, macOS and watchOS Leaks, Coronavirus, and ARM Macs on the AppleInsider Podcast

in General Discussion edited June 2020
We round up all the iOS 14, macOS 10.16 and watchOS 7 leaks, discuss the spread and ramifications of the Coronavirus, plus Ming-Chi Kuo moves up the release of ARM Macs and new keyboards, on the AppleInsider podcast.

Numerous iOS 14, macOS 10.16 and watchOS 7 leaks came out this past week, including many feature additions to Messages. From cutting down group notifications by only getting notified when you're mentioned by name, to the ability to retract a message after being sent, we discuss the features we're most excited about.

Also, Apple Watch may become more useful for parents as there are rumors of "watchOS 7" updates that would allow parents to set up a child's Watch without requiring a standalone iPhone. Plus blood oxygen detection may be coming to the Apple Watch "Series 6," as may the ability to share your watch faces with friends.

We also cover the now-pandemic Coronavirus (Covid-19) and the steps Apple is taking to reduce the spread and severity of the disease.

Ming-Chi Kuo has updated the released timeline of ARM-based Macs and new MacBooks with scissor-switch keyboards to the end of this year.

    little thing while listening to the podcast, the bit about an "ocr for text written in longhand through Pencil" and the immediate reminiscing about the Newton.

    I remember the Newton, though I didn't have one myself; but what I remember was that its handwriting recognition worked *perfectly* for me, despite my handwriting always being, truly, truly, awful.

    The epiphany came talking to a friend from Taiwan, talking about writing chinese characters. *stroke order* is critically important when learning to write these characters. And I realised... although my handwriting had even by that point degenerated into an awful scrawl (it was *never* good, much worse now), I had nevertheless learned how to do it using a classic cursive handwriting method, which meant my *stroke order* - that is, the order and direction in which you draw the various lines and curves of each letter, and the joins between them - was completely classical, completely orthogonal, and the Newton's handwriting algorithms just loved me. (And i never reciprocated: I was never rich enough back then to buy one.)

    But it's not what your handwriting *looks* like, it's how you draw it, as an event that transpires over time.
